An Apple A Day And Then Some

Ah, apples. Eaten out of hand. Crisp and delicious.

Did you know that an apple a day really is good advice?

Apples have no fat, cholesterol or sodium, and contain small amounts of potassium, which promote heart health, help maintain healthy blood pressure and a healthy weight.

Smell that delicate aroma of freshly picked apples.
Can’t you just hear the sound of a child biting into a nice crisp apple? Imagine that little spurt of apple juice flickering on her lips…

Here’s a local Apple Orchard just outside of Chaseburg.

Perfect for a visit on one of those perfectly sunny fall days; the kind of weather when the air has just that little nip of chill and the sun warms it right off your face.

Maple Ridge Orchard, in the heart of Amish country.

Fresh. Homegrown. Local.

Season Grand Opening Special: September 18th
Brat fry and soda = $1.50; Apple pie slices = $1.00

Homegrown apples (Honeycrisp, Gingergold, Macintosh, Cortland, Jonagold, Gala, Fuji, and more) from over 2,500 fruit trees to delight the senses; Raspberries, Pumpkins; and a u-pick vegetable garden.
